March 22, 2012 — At the 61st meeting of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) in Chicago, GE Healthcare is introducing Centricity Cardio Enterprise, a new and comprehensive IT solution that offers cardiologists a single point of access to patient data, images and reports across the continuum of care while enhancing physician productivity and improving charge capture accuracy. Centricity Cardio Enterprise enables the cardiovascular care area with configurable workflow, tools and reports that can be shared across multiple facilities and organizations.
With Centricity Cardio Enterprise, cardiologists can be more mobile as patient data and diagnostic-quality images are readily available. It also allows cardiologists to easily and securely access the complete patient cardiovascular record for more rapid and informed clinical decision making determinations that can have an impact on patients.
Chief information officers and cardiology administrators will appreciate Centricity Cardio Enterprise’s scalability and IT infrastructure, leveraging GE Healthcare’s vendor-neutral archiving platform. It provides standards-based image and document storage with an ability to intelligently enforce life cycle management policies. The IT solution also automates post-procedural patient outcomes management to not only help customers in meeting today’s regulatory needs, but also prepare them for upcoming changes in the future.
“We value our partnership with GE and its focus on providing clinical IT solutions that simplify access to critical patient information for our clinicians,” said Daniel Salzberg, administrative director of information services at Bon Secours Health System in Virginia. “We are excited about the possibilities of the new cardiovascular IT platform, Centricity Cardio Enterprise, which provides a comprehensive solution across the cardiovascular care area.”
“This is the future of cardiovascular patient care,” said Michael Jackman, vice president and general manager of GE Healthcare IT. “We’re delivering greater value to cardiologists with Centricity Cardio Enterprise—particularly with its location agnostic access and productivity enhancement capabilities. Less time entering data or manually reporting on a cardiovascular IT solution means more time spent on patient care.”
